For 'Golden' and other high specification welds, a specially designed Weld Purge Monitor® incorporating an Integral Pump
Designed and manufactured by Huntingdon Fusion Techniques, the PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® has been specifically developed for critical joints.
This attractively priced instrument is ideally used for ultra critical or 'Golden' welds where oxygen levels need to be indicated to a very precise level as low as 1 ppm.
The PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® is intended for use in the welding of titanium, other reactive alloys, as well as duplex and chrome steels and those high quality stainless steel welds.
In addition, the monitor is particularly suitable for welds in ultra clean conditions, such as in LNG, food, semi-conductor, pharmaceutical sectors and any other process industries.
The PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® has an integral pump for applications where there is insufficient flow of exhaust gas.
Special attention has been paid to electrical shielding to avoid interference.
This lightweight, reasonably priced low cost instrument includes a unique fast response indefinite lifespan sensor which has virtually no maintenance requirement.
PurgeLog™ software allows the print out of Quality Management documentation where the recording and auditing capabilities are considered vital to the tube and pipe sector for traceability.
PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® are available for immediate delivery.
Some Advantages and Key Features
The PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® is menu driven by two adjustable buttons on the front panel.
Reads from 1000 ppm down to 1 ppm with large alpha numeric display.
Incorporates an internal alarm.
Quality Management print outs.
High and low oxygen levels which can be set on the front panel.
Automatic alarm switching in the event of oxygen level increase.
The pump is automatic for extracting a gas sample where it is not possible to deliver a constant flow over the sensor.
A unique, fast response, lifetime sensor with little to no maintenance requirement.
PurgeLog™ software package which is included allows for computer interfacing, data acquisition, storage and printing of results and graphs for Quality Management purposes.
The instrument is small, lightweight, portable and comparatively inexpensive.
Includes automatic fault finding diagnostics.
Weld Start/Stop Facility.
The PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® has been purpose designed and developed for the joining of super critical welds where there is insufficient flow of exhaust gas and the internal pump is required.
It is ideal for use during welding of orbital tube and pipe welds and also with chamber welding of titanium and other reactive alloy components.
Manufactured to ISO 9000 Quality Standards.

Frequently Asked Questions
1.0 What is the intended application for the PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor®?
In welding applications where there is insufficient flow of the exhausting weld purge gas, the PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® with its integral pump will extract the weld purge gases and draw them across the measuring sensor.
Also, applications demanding extremely accurate readings from 1000 ppm down to 1 ppm, such as welds made in titanium, duplex, nickel alloys and high specification stainless steels.
2.0 What sort of sensor is used in the PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor®?
The PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® uses a solid state sensor of a unique design. It is very much lower in cost than other measuring sensors and has an indefinite lifespan.
3.0 My Company needs a Calibration Certificate once a year for all instruments. How do I obtain one?
Huntingdon Fusion Techniques has a re-calibration facility. Return the instrument to us, we will recalibrate it and return it with a Certificate within a few days.
4.0 Why do I need software?
The software package is optional for those companies who may need to produce Quality Control documentation to show that the oxygen levels remained below the values required for the duration of the weld time.
The software allows the user to plot oxygen reading against time, save the information to hard drive and print the data as required.
5.0 Is the PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® sensitive to electrical disturbances?
Each instrument has shielding to prevent most forms of interference.
Quality Control Test and Inspection criteria are designed to account for as many variables as possible
It is extremely rare that electrical interference will affect the monitor.
